Electrical Equipment and Smoke Damage
During a fire in a building there is often the major damage of smoke and soot that is easily visible. However, there is another damage that will be almost invisible and hard to detect.
Electrical Equipment Damaged by Smoke
Every electrical item, especially the big ones, have fans to draw in air to cool it and keep it from overheating. During a fire these fans run overtime to keep the machine cool but are drawing in acrid smoke.
The smoke will then leave soot within the electrical item that eventually will eat at the copper and plastics slowly.
When your office or commercial building has a fire give SERVPRO of Bartlett / Cordova / East Memphis a call and we can asses the damage, do the cleanup, and rebuild any damaged areas from a devastating fire.
